How to instal the CISS for Epson XP-103

The principle of setting the CISS for Epson XP-103 is not different from the other models in the series XP. In the beginning it is necessary to fill the ink, vented it and then install into the printer. Let us consider the detail.

The CISS is made of the plastic and the chip. The sequence of colors in the plastic can be different, you need to look to the ribbon cable. If they don't match, you can swap the labels and the corks (Figure 1, 2). If you want to swap donors, see this article
